On Newen:

Newen possesses a vital energy. The title, an ancient Mapuche word, is both intimate and epic, something whispered, an enigmatic conception of the universe from the end of the world … a secret code of mists, landscapes and wise old women, … who merge together in a collage that ... combines the past, present and future. (Fernando Birri)


WORKSHOP: PS from La Patagonia: Mapuche women through British women’s eyes

How did the repression of Mapuche identity begin? What role did female Anglican missionaries play in it? Can secret archives reveal the forgotten history of dispossession depicted in Newen? In this workshop, we will look at the messages posted by C19th British missionaries to understand the complex interconnection between gender, modernity, and identity in the history of La Patagonia. Just as Angueira uses a diary to reconstruct the history of her ancestors, we will use the letters, illustrations, and photos of Anglican women to examine the multifaceted role that they played in the lives of Mapuche communities, interrogating narratives of exclusion and inequity. The conversation will be in English and followed by an activity where you can have a go at creating your own Patagonian narrative!
